Jump to navigation Jump to search

A continuing competition held by the Zhodani government for excellence in psionic achievement.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Competition is staged in nearly all fields of psionics, including telekinetic weight-lifting, distance and accuracy teleportation, and many other events.

  • The psionic games are held once per Olympiad, for a period of nearly four weeks, on Zhdant.
  • The participants (mostly intendants) are selected by the various ruling councils, and preliminary competitions are held to reduce the numbers to manageable size.
  • Intendants who do well in the games are promoted to Noble status.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Because the Zhodani system provides psionic training to all nobles and to the intendant class, the psionic games are a popular device for the masses to see the powers of their rulers in action.
